Bitcoin payments startup Breez enables buying Lightning BTC using credit card

posted 6 days ago
Payments startup Breez unveiled a new feature allowing users in 35 countries to make Lightning-based Bitcoin purchases directly from its mobile app. Breez partnered with fiat-to-crypto broker MoonPay. According to the company, it simplifies the currently long-winded procedure for lightning payments.

Breez CEO and co-founder Roy Sheinfeld said “Breez is… a lightning payment service that aims to provide a holistic experience. Breez’s goal is to [create]...an experience regular folks could use without compromising on the Bitcoin values. Other wallets are less UX focused.” Breez doesn’t require users to provide personal information for purchases up to 150 euro per month. But for amounts larger than that, it requires users to prove their identity under KYC laws.
